Bacon Wrapped Artichoke Hearts with Lemon Dijon Aioli

Bacon wrapped anything is my favorite.  Really.  Bacon wrapped shrimp, bacon wrapped water chestnuts, bacon wrapped sausage with water chestnuts...the list goes on.  So how about we have ourselves some bacon wrapped artichoke hearts?  Yes?  Yes.  

Pretty simple here...just wrap your artichoke hearts in some bacon, 1 artichoke heart per half slice of bacon. 

Cook at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until bacon is nice and golden and crispy crispaayyy.

The best part of this is surprisingly the dipping sauce.  Actually it's the bacon.  Who am I kidding. Seriously though, the dipping sauce is AMAZING.  We were dipping everything into this stuff. 

Bacon Wrapped Artichoke Hearts with Lemon Dijon Aioli 

2 14-oz. jars artichoke hearts
8 slices bacon, halved crosswise

1/2 Cup of Hellman's Mayonnaise 
2 Tbs of Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Tsp of Freshly Grated Lemon Zest 
1 Tbs of Dijon Mustard 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drain artichoke hearts.  Wrap artichoke heart in bacon and place on non stick cookie sheet seam side down. Cook until bacon becomes golden brown and crispy, about 25 minutes to 30 minutes or so.  Meanwhile, mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest and Dijon mustard.  Serve alongside bacon artichoke hearts and enjoy. 

What do you like to wrap in bacon?  Stay hungry! 


  1. Quick question - did you use the marinated artichokes in olive oil or the plain ones in the can?
